I very rarely, if ever, disagree with anything the board do. This though, aggravates me.
Not least because of the apparent disregard the board have given to the finances of the local people. It has been done to death and I don’t wish to saturate the argument even further but really, for a club who tries to prides itself on it’s work with the community- this feels like a very distancing measure.
Furthermore however, I feel that the whole ‘retainer’ scheme is utterly negative. Although I can understand the club’s ambition to want to keep the attendance levels at a healthy number, it is completely misguided to believe that this scheme is the answer.
